Storyline

Bob Honcho gives the Film Crew the lowly task of providing a commentary track for Walk the Angry Beach (1968), aka Hollywood After Dark, a caper film that makes periodic stops for long scenes of women doing ghastly stripping routines. The female lead is, of all people, Rue McClanahan from The Golden Girls (1985). And, yes, she strips. Dark, depressing and dull are the three d-words that best describe this dumb, dismal and dreary (those are the three others) piece of dreck (lucky seven). During the break, Bill Corbett calls a lunch meeting to brainstorm ways of exploiting "core competencies." At the end, the Film Crew is inspired to make a video of Bill getting killed with cotton candy. Written by J. Spurlin

It took Rue McClanahan's death to finally watch one of her early sleazies-Hollywood After Dark-that gets made fun of by "The Film Crew"
3 June 2010 | by tavmSee all my reviews

Because Rue McClanahan died today, I decided to finally watch this sleazy grindhouse fare she made in the '60s, not to dishonor her memory, but to honor that she made it past this period to get great roles in "Maude" and, especially, "The Golden Girls". This is the first time I've also watched "The Film Crew", a post-"MST3K" project created by and starring Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy. They're workers made to comment on bad movies on videocassette by their boss, Bob Honcho, whose voice we hear on the phone while the camera shows his picture. Okay, seeing Ms. McClanahan strip isn't too sleazy here since we don't see her boobs (or any of the other strippers') and they're intercut with audience reactions. It's the story itself that brings some of that vibe. The hilarious riffing concerns the jazz score which brings plenty of name dropping, a robbery when there's no dialogue, and sexual innuendo. The scenes set during lunch break, not to mention the last one with a dummy and an extra about an ode to lunch, varies from pretty funny to not so but they're interesting to watch too. Okay, so by itself, I wouldn't recommend Hollywood After Dark, but with the often-funny commentary, definitely!
